What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected in order to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior. Furthermore, personal data that we receive from you in the course of a business relationship is also processed.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

2. data processing

We process data in the course of operating our website. The processing of data also includes disclosure by transmission.

The data concerned in detail, processing purposes, legal basis, recipients and transmissions to third countries are listed below:

Server log files

We log your visit to our website. The following data is processed: The name of the web page accessed, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred, the browser type and version, the operating system you are using, the referrer URL (the web page visited before), your IP address and the requesting provider.

The processing of the data entered in the forms is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal notification by e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you make an inquiry for the test access of our product Evalanche, this requires an explicit agreement of our terms of use.

The data entered by you will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data is stored no longer applies (e.g. after completion of processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment, content design or change of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data about the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable or invoice the user for the use of the service.

We reserve the right to contact the persons named in the contract and registration directly by e-mail or, if applicable, telephone to fulfil our contractual obligations with regard to notifying our customers of significant changes in the product (evaluation), planned maintenance work, technical problems or similar. This is absolutely necessary for the provision of our support services and thus for the fulfilment of the contract (Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR). There is no right of objection.

The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Registration Access data for Evalanche

To use our product Evalanche (E-Mail Marketing Automation Solution) you need a separate access. You can register via our website, e.g. by using our request form for the Evalanche test access. We use the data entered for this purpose only for the purpose of using the Evalanche service. The mandatory data requested during registration must be given completely. Otherwise we will refuse the registration.

For important changes, e.g. in the scope of the offer or for technically necessary changes, we will use the e-mail address given during registration to inform you in this way.

The data entered during registration is processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke any consent you have given at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal notification by e-mail. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data collected during registration is stored by us for as long as you are registered and is then deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Evalanche APP

If you use our Evalanche APP, we process your access data for Evalanche to offer you the services of the app. To use the APP you therefore have to register for Evalanche first.

The processing of the access data is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time by logging out of the App. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

We also process the data you enter when using the App, such as images, campaign information, campaigns and campaign cards. This is done in order to fulfil our contractual obligations on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.

Processing of customer and contract data

We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data on the use of our Internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable or charge the user for the use of the service.

In order to fulfil our contractual obligations with regard to the notification of our customers about significant changes in the product (Evalanche), planned maintenance work, technical problems or similar, we reserve the right to contact the persons named in the contract and the registration directly by e-mail or, if necessary, by telephone. This is absolutely necessary for the provision of our support services and thus for the fulfilment of the contract (Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR). There is no right of objection.

Due to legal requirements (Art. 6 para. 1 letter c GDPR)

We are subject to various legal obligations that entail data processing. These include, for example

  • Tax laws as well as the legal bookkeeping
  • meeting requests and requirements of supervisory or law enforcement authorities
  • the fulfilment of fiscal control and reporting obligations

In addition, the disclosure of personal data may become necessary in the context of official/judicial measures for the purpose of gathering evidence, prosecution or enforcement of civil claims.

Within the scope of balancing interests (Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR)

As far as necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfilment of the contract in order to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties. Examples of such cases are:

  • Assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes
  • Processing in the CRM system

The collected customer data will be deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

Data transmission upon conclusion of contract

We only transfer personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the processing of the contract, for example, to the credit institution commissioned with the processing of payments. A further transmission of the data does not take place or only if you have expressly agreed to the transmission. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, for example for advertising purposes.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Credit assessment

Furthermore, we use your name and address data to carry out a credit check manually, depending on the project. The credit assessment is not based on an automated individual decision of a system, but is carried out on behalf of SC-Networks primarily by the Verband der Vereine Creditreform e. V., Hellersbergstraße 12 D-41460 Neuss and in rare cases additionally by Bisnode Deutschland GmbH, Robert-Bosch-Straße 11, 64293 Darmstadt. These credit agencies will use your data to check whether you are already listed in the credit agencies' database and whether existing data, e.g. on previous defaults or current contracts, can be assigned to you. We thus obtain information on your previous payment history and creditworthiness information. We use the information from the credit agencies solely to protect ourselves against possible defaults of payment, in which our predominantly legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR is given. In any case, we will supply you on advance payment or after presentation of a bank guarantee or credit insurance, unless other reasons exclude delivery. We store the data we have received from credit agencies for the duration of the business relationship in order to reduce the number of queries to credit agencies.

We use the registration data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 b and f GDPR. The credit agencies act on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR in conjunction with § 31 BDSG.

This website uses Google Ads. Ads is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of ads customers.

The customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you don't want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this use by slightly disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie on your web browser under User Preferences.

E-mail newsletters and other direct mail

On our download page you have the possibility to request various contents such as checklists, guides, e-books and whitepapers, for which a registration (including newsletter) is required. After you have registered for the content, you can access the download and receive an individual newsletter.

Our offer requests and requests for Evalanche test access via the website are also coupled with a newsletter opt-in under consideration of the GDPR. In Art. 7 para. 4 GDPR, which are voluntary.

If you want to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and agree to receive the newsletter. After registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your newsletter registration. Only after the confirmation we will send you our newsletter. Further data will not be collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use these data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass them on to third parties.

Consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is given on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 (a), Art. 7 GDPR and § 7 Para. 2 No. 3 or Para. 3 UWG. The use of the dispatch service provider, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration procedure are based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. We are interested in the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests, including direct advertising, and meets the expectations of the users.

Newsletter registrations are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address. Changes to your stored data are also logged.

You can revoke your consent to receive our newsletter at any time. You can unsubscribe for this purpose by using the link in the newsletter or by written notice to SC-Networks GmbH, keyword: Newsletter, Würmstraße 4, 82319 Starnberg. In case of a written notice the objection will be implemented within three weeks after receipt by us.

If we use your personal data for direct advertising, you can object to this at any time by informing us in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR.

For the dispatch of our newsletter we use Evalanche. Evalanche will not forward the data mentioned here to third parties. Evalanche is an analysis service of SC-Networks GmbH, Würmstraße 4, 82319 Starnberg. Evalanche uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the newsletter. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the newsletter (including your IP address) is read out and sent to a server in Germany.

The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. This is a miniature graphic that allows us to recognize whether a newsletter has been opened by you or not. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, the terminal device used and the mail client as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, which links are clicked and whether the delivery of the e-mails was successful. Furthermore, the reading time is recorded, although this is only done on a target group basis. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients, but it is neither our nor SC Networks/Evalanche's intention to observe individual users. The evaluations rather serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.

To be able to send you customized newsletters, an explicit tracking consent is necessary. If you have given your consent, you agree that a personal user profile may be created based on your data in order to better adapt websites and newsletters on products, services and market trends to your needs. This enables SC-Networks GmbH to provide you with information that corresponds to your specific interests. Furthermore, you agree that your personal user behaviour on websites and in dealing with all e-mails of SC-Networks GmbH is recorded by using cookies and tracking technology. You can withdraw your consent to the creation of a personal user profile at any time. Furthermore you have the possibility to revoke your tracking consent by using the tracking unsubscribe link in every newsletter.

You have the right to have data, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only take place to the extent that it is technically feasible.

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, the right to correct (as far as this is possible according to applicable law), block or delete this data. The same applies if we are to process data in the future only to a limited extent.

Restrictions

Data where we are not able to identify the data subject, e.g. if they have been anonymised for analysis purposes, are not covered by the above rights. Information, deletion, blocking, correction or transfer to another company may be possible with regard to this data if you provide us with additional information that allows us to identify you.
